VGHS at The Streamys

I'd like to take some time to congratulate everyone at RocketJump.

They're some of the hardest working group of people I've ever gotten to meet.
Their hard work and dedication is getting some well-deserved recognition.
They took home some Streamys for Video Game High School last night.

The won awards in the following categories:

  • Ensemble Cast
  • Directing
  • Action and Sci-Fi
They were also nominated in several others, but unfortunately didn't take those home. 

They've announced, and teased some upcoming projects which make me excited for their future.
I can't wait to see them continue to grow and to continue to gain success in whatever they do.

Steam: My Addiction

I have a problem.

It's a First World Problem, possibly the most first world problem there is.
but it's a problem nonetheless.

I have 68 games in my Steam Library... 63 of which I haven't even opened yet.

In my defense I own the console versions of some of these games, so I never felt the need to play them...
Actually... That probably makes things worse doesn't it?

My lack of self-control is not to blame here...
I blame Humble Bundles & Steam Sales.

I never understood how a girl can buy a pair of shoes that she didn't need until I experienced my first Steam Summer Sale.

and never play it...

There are a games that I've bought more than once.
Just because they were on sale...
I already owned them, I hadn't even played them... but shit, they were 99cents!
I'm not sure what's worse, my addiction to buying Steam Games or making a Macklemore reference.

No but really, this is a problem...

Marvel announced that they cast actor/comedian/rapper/idol of mine Donald Glover as Spider-Man.

Before comic book "purists" get their Spider-Man panties (Spider-Manties?) in a bunch he is not replacing Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker... He's not even playing him in a Live-Action role.
He's playing the version of Spider-Man he helped inspire Miles Morales for "Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors" on Disney XD.

I'm really happy that he was cast, it's like when Samuel L. Jackson was cast as Nick Fury after his likeness was used as the inspiration for Fury's new design.

ALS - Ice Bucket Challenge

The Ice Bucket challenge bugs me a little.
just a little...

What it's supposed to be is a way to both raise money for research and raise awareness to the cause.
It's done a good job of doing both.
That's not what bugs me.

What bugs me are the people who do the Ice Bucket Challenge wrong. 
Like not mentioning ALS or not mentioning where they can donate/find out more info. 

Pretty much just dumping cold water on their heads for the sake of following a trend. 
People doing it for the sake of attracting attention to themselves... that bugs me.

I've seen so many videos from people just dumping cold water on their heads and calling out three more people.
No mention of the cause, no call to action... nothing.

Also, while we're on the topic of doing The Ice Bucket Challenge wrong, can we make sure there's ice in your buckets.
I've seen people just pour water on their heads. Just plain (probably room temperature) water.
That's cheating. 

That being said, I haven't been called out yet.
People must realize that I'm so cool the low temperature of the water will have no affect on me.
If you want to find out more information regarding ALS go to

My Thoughts on TMNT 2014

I reluctantly saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie...

I was expecting it to be totally awful... It wasn't TOTALLY awful.
But it was kind of awful...

The Turtles themselves were great...the movie surrounding them...not so great...
It was filled with plot holes, and reasons to keep Megan O'Neil around...

with that being said...typed?...

I wasn't the worst thing in the world...
Sure, it wasn't a cinematic masterpiece but it had its moments where I truly enjoyed it.

It added some elements that hadn't really been seen in other incarnations of the turtles.

and the Turtles (aside from looking like nightmare fuel) were REALLY enjoyable to watch.
They felt like the Ninja Turtles I know and love...

... then there's the Michael Bay Factor....

I had been on a "Baycott' for a while before actually seeing the movie...
Even though he only produced it... it was still a Michael Bay movie...
explosions... bad acting... cheesy jokes... attractive women for the sake of having an attractive woman... it was all there.

Watching it, it kind of felt like a Transformers Movie *cough**cough*Shredder*cough**cough*

The movie also focused too much on the human characters...
it's a Ninja Turtles Movie... they should be front and center for at least 90% of the movie.

I'm actually considering watching the already announced sequel...
no promises though...

Mr. Robin Willams...

I've been very hesitant to write about this.
Everyone is doing it and I don't want it to look like I'm doing it for the sake of following a trend...
on the other hand I want to talk about it and talking about anything else would just feel wrong...

So here it goes.

Robin Williams...

Up until recently I've never lived in a world without Robin Williams.
He had always been around. I would've never been able to imagine a world without him.
and to be honest... I still can't.
I'm having a hard time believing it.
This person who brought me so much happiness and laughter...
Someone who helped mold my sense of humor and personality...
Someone who taught me that being a big kid, a goof ball was okay.
I can be myself... he taught me that.
Although I never met him, I feel like I knew him.
A hero of mine, someone I looked up to...

But he was a husband and a father before being an entertainer...
so to his family, I want to give my condolences.

Both Robin Williams and his family are in my thoughts and prayers.

To Robin Williams.

Thank you for the laughter.
Thank you for the many stories.
Thank you for the lessons.
Thank you for everything.
